Actor and musician Paul Greene defines his life by four essential qualities: fatherhood, fitness, faith, and family. No matter his current focus–the release of his album, “Freedom For Your Soul,” the writing of his paradigm-shifting parenting book, or the portrayal of Dr. Carson Shepherd for five seasons on the ratings-juggernaut Hallmark Channel series “When Calls the Heart”–he knows how to enjoy his most abundant life possible.
Born in Wetaskiwin, Alberta, Canada, Greene was raised on a farm and learned first-hand the importance of faith, hard work, and family. Upon his high school graduation, he left for college on a volleyball scholarship, leading to Paul’s discovery by renowned modeling agent, Kelly Streit. At the age of 18, he immediately became an international success in the modeling world due to being featured on dozens of magazine covers and representing blockbuster brands like Armani, Tommy, Men’s Journal, Hilfiger, J. Crew, Men’s Health, and many more.
Throughout his 20s, Paul’s emerging modeling career kept him active in the cities of New York, Paris, London, Milan, and Japan, while studying acting with Uta Hagen, Stella Adler, and Susan Batson to amplify his career. The creative call of acting directed him to move to Los Angeles, where Paul continued to book commercials and garnered success as a series regular and guest star on dozens of TV shows, including NCIS, CSI, The Newsroom, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, and Bitten, to name a few. Coined the “Cary Grant” of the Hallmark Channel, with the current season 8 of When Calls the Heart, he has already gained significant acclaim, leading to starring roles in several films as a consistent presence on the network.
When not working in his chosen field, Paul enjoys flying planes, riding motorcycles, making music, camping, and being a dad. He finds immense joy in helping others achieve their health and wellness goals. With a deep passion for music, he expresses his creativity by singing and songwriting. His crowning achievement has been the annual privilege of performing in a holiday benefit concert at Carnegie Hall. Paul, who lost his father to ALS, has also made a life-long commitment to raising funds and awareness for this and other socially responsible causes that are important to him. Paul lives in Los Angeles with his family.
